Most surgeons are highly skilled and take great care to perform operations correctly. Sadly, exceptions do occur. A surgeon may be negligent in his or her duty to provide an acceptable standard of care, resulting in additional injury to the patient. Examples of such negligence include performing surgery on an unstable patient, failure to treat post-operative complications, use of unsanitary surgical instruments, wrong-site surgery and more.
